 Read my story as it unfolds

Before joining the tech industry, I was jobless nearly homeless, and down to my last $70 while I was living in a moldy storage room in a mobile home in a trailer park in North Platte, Nebraska.

After finding my way to South America where I trekked the Peruvian Andes and High Jungle, I began learning to code. My life has irreversibly been altered for the better because of that decision.

I have been a keynote speaker at major events, won awards at startup accelerators, built websites for major and minor companies, taught dozens of people to code, and made friends from all over the world as I have adopted the life of a world traveler.

Now, I share my story and experience with all who will listen.
